Climatic Load

Glossary Term

Gas inserted into a multi-pane insulating glass modifies its volume depending on the temperature and atmospheric pressure. This results in a load on the glass panes, which should be taken into account.

The RF‑GLASS add‑on module allows you to include such climatic loads. For this, it is necessary to create a separate load case for each climatic load. Climate loads are comprised of temperature differences, pressure differences and altitude differences.
